Shock Rangers development gives Gerrard about a week left


After Zak Rudden was unexpectedly confirmed as an effective transfer to Plymouth (initial loan with option to buy/extend), it was the latest example of Steven Gerrard’s canny performances with the media.

A number of weeks ago, the manager confirmed his three options up front were Morelos, Defoe and Rudden, with the latter coming back from injury.

Now that the young striker has more or less gone south and left Rangers for good, Rangers are now in the strange position of having just two senior strikers at the entire club.

Gerrard admits he likes two players per position, so that would be accurate to his summations, but we’re just not sure two is enough, especially taking into account injuries and suspensions.

With nine days to go till the window shuts, Rangers now have just two options up front, and if we’re honest, that’s simply not enough – if either of them becomes unavailable for any reason, rotation ceases, and the generally potent attack has to rely on one man and no alternative options.

We accept that Rudden probably wouldn’t have played a part under Gerrard anyway even if he’d stayed, but letting him go on top of Lafferty, while understandable, has left Rangers beyond threadbare and kind of critical with regards to a further striker.

We have just over a week to secure another body up top – preferably a strong target man with strong footwork. A ‘Daniel Cousin’ if you like.

These don’t come cheap. But time is definitely running out.


  1. See we've just been orded to close a section of ibrox with 3000 minimum not getting in for the game against legia warsaw by UEFA for sectarian singing against st josephs,why cant we change the words from fenian to scumbags or smelly cunts,etc etc ??.is it going to get all the stadium closed before the songs stop ??…No Surrender…

  2. Greg Stewart is quite likely going to be used as our third striker. I mean there is absolutely no way he's getting into our midfield, especially if we sign Ryan Kent.

  3. heard rangers have put a 6 million pound bid into Liverpool for kent for a season long loan then pay 6 mill next year ,plus wish those so called fans would either shut up or stay away that's our club going to loose well needed cash next Thursday plus the more fans the better for our players they could sing were up to our knees in EastEnders blood or summit
